  1. Is the car still available? What is the mileage? Do you have the full document history of the car? Thanks?
  2. Members 478 Posted Tuesday at 05:17 PM When we, and many others, downloaded our official certificate we found errors. In our case the dates of for each of our two vaccinations were incorrect. The vaccine we received was "Pfizer" but the certificate says "Sinovac" and the Lot or Batch Number for the vaccine is incorrect. As we were able to report the errors we followed the instructions by 1) Scanning the receipts we were given at the vaccination site in El Salto and the 2) Uploaded the scanned receipts to the "Correction Input" form and reported each of the errors. The information you are allowed to correct on the input form is listed following: 1. Correction of Dose 2. Correction of Date 3. Missing Dose 4. Batch correction 5. Correction of Vaccine and 6. Correction of your contact information...i.e. your email. It now been three months and although we check every few days no corrections have been made and as you are only allowed to enter the correction site once if you try again you get the message: YOUR CURP NUMBER HAS ALREADY BEEN USED TO REPORT ERRORS.......and the form does not allow you to proceed further. Has anyone else experience the same problem and discovered a solution? We contacted a senior health professional in Guadalajara and when we explained our situation, his response was very precise. "Fly to L.A. like family, friends and associates of mine have done.....and instead of confusing the U.S. vaccine administrators by trying to describe your predicament in Mexico, simply tell them you have not been vaccinated. Obtain the J. & J. single dose and get the "world wide" accepted "scannable" proof of your vaccination on your phone immediately."

  4. THE TOPIC IS GREAT PLACES TO EAT. Last night we once again ordered delivery from Min Wah (Please don't respond telling us where you come from and what restaurant there did, or didn't do well......it's not a response that's of interest. The original post by "rafterbr" that resulted in this thread asked for recommendations for great places for food here at Lakeside. Our food was requested for delivery at 7:00p.m. The driver was at our door at 7:02p.m. We ordered: 1 order of egg rolls (2), 1 order of Lo Mein Shrimp and 1 order of Carne de Res Curry. We had sufficient of the two main courses for lunch today or tomorrow. Oh yes, if anyone is really interested, the shrimp were large. properly cleaned, translucent and not overcooked! Price $450.00MN ($22.67USD) plus $50.00MN gratuity for the driver. Food: Well packaged, piping hot and excellent in every category! As good as we've ever had anywhere in the world where Chinese food was available and had a "solid and long established reputation". (Vancouver, Seattle, New York, Boston, London, Toronto, Montreal, Mexico City, Edinburgh, Chicago, Detroit) All three of the items we ordered were exceptional and likely at least 1/3 of the price that they would be in any of the cities I've mentioned.
  5. I can't prove what I now, definitely know happened. In retrospect, seeing the waiter actually examine my card, I now know that what has now occurred simply as a result of my carelessness in allowing the young waiter such access to my card. He obviously was after the 3 digit code on the reverse of the card. If someone else would respond to my post and report that they've had a similar incident or incidents in a well-known San Antonio Tlyacapan restaurant then I would feel far more comfortable in naming the restaurant. If you "Google" the exact wording for the one fraudulent charge you'll have a clear "picture" of the extent of this problem: The waiter would not be doing this on his own and is likely part of a well controlled and schooled net-work. It appears that millions of pesos are scammed and can be traced back to this site.......and it's been happening for years! BP*RETAIL VTAS GUADALAJARA J
  6. On July 7th we attended a fairly well known restaurant in SAT. On paying our bill the waiter used his telephone to process the charge and gratuity on my Mexican credit card. At one point he actually asked for the card which I provided. Of course, as he was using his own phone, no receipt was provided and, stupidly, I thought no more about it. However, on the 12th of July a charge was processed on my credit card and identified as CLIN CABEZA Y CUELLO CHAPALA JAL in the amount of $870.00MN. On contacting our bank I was advised to cancel the card and, fortunately, yesterday I received my replacement card by courier. However, on checking my credit card account on line I noticed that although the new credit card account number was shown there was another "fraudulent" charge on July 14th that had not been posted when I had contacted the bank about the first unauthorized charge. The second charge in the amount of $1,100.00MN was identified as BP*RETAIL VTAS GUADALAJARA J. Of course, I've again contacted the bank and that charge has been assigned an investigation and my new card remains in force. However, on checking on the internet to see if BP*RETAIL VTAS has any further meaning it would appear that I'm not only person who has been scammed. The bank officer that I spoke with today asked if anyone could have had access to the 3 digit code on the back of my original card? If anyone else has had similar problems it would be great to confirm the source and involve the authorities. Our bank would also like to know if we make any progress and they have also assured us that they consider the situation serious!

  8. When you go to the web-site - cvcovid.salud.gob.mx and the page opens you'll be asked to put in your CURP. It usually only takes a few seconds and unless it tells you to wait a few minutes and try again it will instead tell you that your official receipt has been sent to the email address you provided when you first registered to obtain the vaccine and again when you received your vaccinations. The email response is usually immediate. However, when my wife and I received our receipts only our names and CURP numbers were correct. The vaccine identification was incorrect. Shown as Sinovac and not the Pfizer vaccine that we received in El Salto. The dates for both injections were wrong and the lot number for the vaccine was incorrect. When you receive the email with your receipt there is also a "entry point" where, after review of the receipt, you can list any errors. You are also asked to upload a "scanned" PDF file of your proof of vaccine. However you have to be careful as the size of the file is restricted. We had to carefully fold the receipts we had received when we were vaccinated so that only the pertinent information was shown. Our two documents once folded (for the 1st and 2nd shot) measured approx. 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches. Sent exactly the same information, first for my wife and then my own and although we've checked daily over the last two weeks no changes have been made!!!!!!! You are not allowed to sent the request for changes a second time. If you try again, you get the response that your CURP has already been used and you cannot proceed further. Does anyone know if there is a government agency or facility in Guadalajara that might be able to assist in getting the corrections made and finally obtaining a legitimate official receipt?
  9. The owner has told me that his established policy, and all staff are aware, when someone complains about a dish they either: not charge or immediately replace!! The owner is a skilled and successful restauranteur who has taken a huge risk in opening here at Lakeside during the Covid epidemic. He lives in GDL, drives here daily and then drives home on a dangerous very poorly lit highway in the dark. If HarryB had made his complaint known it would have been attended to........with no doubt whatsoever. If you can't give a restaurant a chance to correct a problem then you shouldn't post a criticism. Who gains? It's interesting to note that since February the only criticism within this entire topic thread is HarryB's! If this restaurant in the past five months had proven to be deserving of complaints there would be the usual high-jacked pages of both real complaints and extracted memories of totally meaningless experiences in far-flung eateries in distant corners of the world. Hasn't happened! Our usual "pick-up orders" for the two of us have been in the $400 to $440 range with always a tip of at least $50 pesos or the change from a $500 peso note and......there's always enough for lunch the next day. Most of us come from locations where you would never be able to find food of this variety, quality or portion size for anything close to the bargains available here.
  10. Simply one of the very best eateries at Lakeside. The owner is skilled, closely supervises preparation and the food is totally authentic. This is the 3rd location for the restaurant. We've been going to the 1st location for several years. - Juan Kepler #3601 in Col. Arboledas in GDL. The 2nd location is on Ave. Providencia 2925 in Col. Providencia, GDL We've ordered food from the Ajijic location now on numerous occasions and we have never been disappointed. Always ready at the time requested. Well packaged for take-a-way and always exactly as ordered and expected. Wonderful, authentic food excellently priced. Definitely worth supporting.
  11. We have visited but, sadly, the restaurant is in no way the same as it was pre-fire. Most obvious..no visible management or supervision of wait staff. This was one of the very best and consistent restaurants at Lakeside!
  12. Is it possible to obtain official proof, on-line, of having received both shots of Covid vaccine in Mexico?
  13. LARGE 100,000 LITRE POOL - METICULOUS AND WANT TO KEEP IT THAT WAY - LOST OUR LONG TERM MAINTENANCE PERSON AND WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE ANY RECOMMENDATIONS.
  14. Totally hijacked thread!
  15. Menu: COZZE ALL PUGLIESE {Mussels Apulian (Puglia, Italy)Style} (Serves 4) 3 LB Mussels 4 tbs olive oil 2 garlic cloves peeled and crushed 7 tbs dry white wine 2 tbs tomato paste 4 tbs water salt and freshly ground black pepper 2 tbs butter 1/4 cup all-pupose flour 1 cup milk 2 tbs grated Parmesan cheese 3 tbs. breadcrumbs Scrub the mussels under cold running water, then soak in cold water for 30 minutes. Drain and discard any that are open. Put the mussels in a pan with half the oil. Cook over high heat for 5 minutes or until the mussels open, discarding any that do not. Strain the cooking liquid and reserve. Remove the mussels from their shells and remove their cute little pubic beards. Heat the remaining oil in a pan, add the garlic and fry gently until golden brown. Add the wine and cooking liquid. Simmer for 5 minutes, then add the tomato purée (paste) diluted with the water. Season with salt and pepper to taste and simmer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small pan, add the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the milk gradually and cook, stirring, over low heat until the sauce thickens. Stir the mussels into the tomato mixture and spoon into a shallow ovenproof dish. Pour over the sauce and sprinkle with the cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake in a preheated moderately hot oven (190C/375F) for 15 minutes. Serve hot with traditional Focaccia . Our choice - Served with the newly released line of L.A. Cetto's White Zinfandel. .
  16. That only applied to people who do not have Permanente status and as a result do not have a CURP number. That was the case for those of our friends when they received their first shot of Pfizer. For those who have Permanente status their Permanente card was all they required, not their passports.
  17. If you are not a permanent resident you need your passport - the same one you proffered when you last entered Mexico.
  18. Proof of your nationality - i.e Passport (if you have more than one use only the one that you use most frequently.)
  19. Proof of citizenship. Proof of age. Proof of Mexican residency status (inclusive of simply tourist visa if no CURP available ). Proof of first vaccine dose obtained from the same location.
  20. Perhaps this will help clear up so much confusion and help eliminate the incredible amount of misinformation that's been posted. On April 15th we received our 1st Pfizer shot in the El Salto location that is shown on the Jalisco Government posting We left Ajijic at 8:00am this morning arrived at the El Salto site (about 3 kms from the airport). Had our second shot of Pfizer at 10:00am (we were probably within the first 60 vaccinated which didn't commence until 9:10am. We were home in Ajijic at 11:05am. Documentary proof of both shots in hand and only 26 days between the two vaccinations. We have two sets of friends who attended the Cutlajomulco drive through site today for their second Pfizer shot this morning and their experience was much the same as ours (for time). They were quite suprised to see far fewer people than when they received their first vaccination. These two couples are long term seasonal use home owners in Ajijic but do not have a CURP number which didn't present a problem on either occasion. Same time frame between shots for our friends. The primary letter of their last name wasn't an issue. See following: https://www.jalisco.gob.mx/es/gobierno/comunicados/vacunacion-en-jalisco
  21. On April 15th we received our 1st Pfizer shot in the El Salto location that is shown on the Jalisco Government posting that "Ariboy" copied and posted (4 posts previous to this post.) We left Ajijic at 8:00am this morning arrived at the El Salto site (about 3 kms from the airport). Had our second shot of Pfizer at 10:00am (we were probably within the first 60 vaccinated which didn't commence until 9:10am. We were home in Ajijic at 11:05am.

  22. Pickles have lots of names and come in jars. So should quite a few posters!
  23. All 4 border states are giving vaccinations to anyone who crosses the border and wants to receive the vaccine. We have friends that flew from GDL to L.A. 3 weeks ago and the day after arriving they received their 1st shot of Pfizer. They stayed 5 days and returned to Ajijic. They left again on Monday of this week and yesterday received their 2nd Pfizer vaccination. They'll return here on Saturday.
  24. POSTED BUT, OBVIOUSLY NOT UNDERSTOOD! THAT'S WHY ARE THERE STILL SO MANY SILLY QUESTIONS? IT'S PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD. IT ONLY APPLIES TO PEOPLE OBTAINING THEIR 2ND SHOT OF PFIZER AT THE SAME LOCATION WHERE THEY OBTAINED THEIR FIRST. VACCINATIONS WILL BE APPLIED TO PEOPLE ON THE DATES LISTED PROVIDING THE FIRST LETTER OF THEIR LAST NAME IS LISTED FOR THAT DATE. YOU WILL ALSO NOTE THAT NONE OF WHAT IS WRITTEN APPLIES TO ANY OTHER VACCINE. ONLY THE 2ND DOSE OF PFIZER.
